In Russia have learned to milk the sturgeon

Stocks of sturgeon, known in Russia as the "Tsar fish", after the fall of the Soviet Union fell, and in 2002 Russia banned the export of caviar.
But it played into the hands of poachers, continuing to catch fish and sell caviar on the black market, the volume of which reached a billion dollars.
Plant breeding sturgeons in Kaluga caviar extracts derived from sturgeon using a special ultrasound technique that does not kill the females.
At the same time, this method of controlled production aimed at saving the sturgeon population in the wild.
Anatoly Pozdnyakov, chief breeder at the factory for the breeding of sturgeons in Kaluga: Caviar wild-caught sturgeon and extracted from bred in captivity, which we keep alive, has the same taste and nutritional qualities. This technology just helps produce eggs without killing the females.
From 2000 to 2005, Russia banned the commercial catch of all species of sturgeon in the Caspian Basin.
But scientists say that this is not enough, and call on all five littoral states, including Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Iran, to act together to save the sturgeon.
